Sittin here listening to All Along the Watchtower from Truckin up to Buffalo. Not Bobbys finest vocals. Was just thinking to myself how much cooler this cover would be with Brent singing it

This could have worked if they had a different arrangement of it .Say, a slower, smokey , menacing version, with maybe a build, or the other way around . I can hear it . I have said this before, but the problem with their account, is that it is unoriginal, sort of like several others out there . An oddly, Jerry's solos are sort of , well, generic super rad hard rock solos, but It's fun to hear him rave it up . I just think the stature of the song deserved something more artful .

One thing for sure, It was always welcome in that post drums slot, because, it usually meant that you were NOT going to get the other over played Weir tunes , and sometimes it meant Garcia would follow it with "Morning Dew" !

to me, Brent started sounding terrible by late 80s...there is a version of He's Gone in late 87 where it sounds like dogs howling at the moon...I can do without more Brent...love his Hammond b3 styled playing the best and his background harmonies

...well yeah . "TEENAGE WASTELANNNNNND, TEENAGE WASTELAND !"...

I was never too keen on the AOR radio covers, by anyone in the band . Some were better than others . I think Brent was a more interesting singer than Vince, and a few of his covers are pretty fun ("Hey Pocky Way").

even if you added Jimi's vocals it wouldn't have saved thixs cover?
